Vericom Training (VC3000 and VC4000)
Tue, Jun 6, 2017, 8:00 AM – Wed, Jun 7, 2017, 5:00 PM MDT
We are pleased to host a two-day training class on Acceleration, Drag Factor, Friction, and detailed use/application of the Vericom instrument for collision investigation. This class includes instruction on VC4000 and VC3000 family of products. A certificate is issued to everyone who completes the training.
Objective: Ensure each attendee can perform a proper skid test to measure Drag Factor in accordance with SAE Standard J2505 “Measurement of Vehicle-Roadway Friction Drag” revised and published in August, 2010.
Review the physics of acceleration/deceleration, friction, drag factor, and brake efficiency – including detailed comparative analysis. Explore the Vericom Profile 5 analysis software and ensure all attendees can analyze acceleration data, skid test data, and data involving multiple surface skids.
Vericom has a long history training law enforcement and accident reconstruction experts on the physics of acceleration and hands-on-use of Vericom instruments for successful investigations and court room documentation. The Vericom team has provided instruction with ACTAR certification for more than 15,000 Police Officers, Inspectors, Engineers and Physicists in the comparative analysis of drag factor and the use of Vericom equipment for collision investigation and Vehicle Safety Inspection.
